      Good morning,

      I am about a month away from having open heart surgery to repair a valve and was wondering if anyone here has had to have a major surgery and what if any complications would arrive from having Gout.

      Though I don’t have personal experience, we’ve discussed surgery and gout before. Particularly in the gallbladder thread. But there was no real conclusion.

      However, there are some significant factors that we need to know about:

      • What is your uric acid level?
      • What treatment(s), if any, are you taking for gout?
      • What have your doctors said about your gout and surgery concerns?

      So please, Anthony, can you let us have this information? There’s no need to join the forum. Unless you want to. Because you can just reply to the forum update list, as you did earlier. Then, I’ll add your replies here.

      Also, I’ll take another look at that gallbladder topic. So I can see if there are any more recent reports. Then I will summarize the key points here.
